MetroRapid Station Construction
Due to the installation of new MetroRapid stations along Routes 801 & 803, some stations will be closed and customers will need to use temporary stops established nearby during the construction. These projects will last into the spring.
A few of the new MetroRapid stations will open without the full shelter and digital signage that other stations along the line feature. That's because those locations are under consideration for further development through the city of Austin's Corridor Improvement Program and will be under construction in the near future. Rather than construct permanent stations that would need to be removed at that time, these MetroRapid stations will feature MetroBus shelters instead.
Fairfield Station Grand Opening & Block Party, 2/23
These new MetroRapid stations are a direct result of community feedback and requests. To celebrate the opening of the new stations at North Lamar and Fairfield, Cap Metro is joining with the neighborhood to throw a block party.
The block party will feature fun and games, kids activities and music from Revancha Huasteca. Lime Scooters will be there to offer safety info and FREE scooter helmets! It'll be Saturday, Feb. 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the parking lot at Fairfield and North Lamar.
Our partners in this event are:
